GCSE Computer Science

Welcome to it's Learning 365.  This website is dedicated to providing free computer science resources for teachers and students.

My name is Steve and I am Head of Faculty for Business and Computer Science Pathfinder Schools Trust in Northamptonshire.  I created this site a few years ago as a revision resource for my students.  It now included resources, lesson plans, revision notes and game for Key Stage 3 and 4 computer science.

I keep the site updated as often as I can.  All the materials on the site I use with my classes and I update it and change the content based on their feedback.  

Anyone is free to use this site and the materials stored on it.  All you need to do is create a free account using your school or college email address.  If you are a teacher and you would like access to the lesson plans part of the site, drop me an email ( after you have created your account and I will give you access.
